    Newborns - Salves van der Gronde, Suzanne Plomp, Jeremi Biziuk, Siem Beets

    We are a collection of young, emerging artists, who are busy with creating otherworldly images, sculptures, digital works and sounds birthed from their contagious ideas and shaping them into grotesquely intriguing objects residing in the “real”. Submerging themselves into works reflecting their vision, they create a world which seems off yet with underlying reasons for feeling as such.

    Escaping doesn’t necessarily mean turning away in fear, it can also be a procreative choice which allows one to submerge themselves fully into what they feel as theirs. Creating a world out of one’s mind can be a practice of imagining and realising a setting born out of the contemporary strains and shackles, one that indulges the maker into their own fantasies which can be transcribed into tactile solutions and proposals for discussion, contextualisation and wonder. In the world of fiction, the audience is asked to participate in maintaining the existence of it by remaining within the suspension of disbelief.

    This reciprocatory relation can be felt strong in works which fictionalise image and text through representation. In case of material based works, this exchange between the audience and the artist comes one step forward, where the fiction becomes physical, tactile, materialised and experienced in the present, in the space, as is.

    The birth of fiction into the “real” blurred the boundary of what it means to imagine, to fictionalise, and whether these intrusions into reality can still be regarded as purely fictional, or a possibility to conceptualise a different current.
